SBE will focus on EAS education for its members
October 27, 2010, Madison, WI - At the Oct. 26 meeting of the Society of
Broadcast Engineers Board of Directors, the SBE Board reaffirmed the
Society's focus in its role with the Emergency Alert System to educate and
inform its members, as well as serve as a technical resource to the
broadcast industry regarding EAS.
Also at the meeting, the Board created a new committee to carry out this
mission. Called the SBE EAS Education Committee, SBE President Vinny
Lopez, CEV CBNT, appointed Ralph Beaver, CBT, to chair this committee.
Beaver's involvement with EAS began with his work in broadcast emergency
alerting in the state of Florida in 1973 and includes his recent
leadership of the SBE's former EAS Committee.
"EAS is about to undergo significant changes with the adoption of the
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and SBE members seek information about how
to implement these changes and remain compliant with FCC rules," said
President Lopez. "The SBE is in a unique position to gather and deliver
this information through the work of this new committee. The SBE continues
to serve as technical resource to the broadcast industry."
The SBE discussion e-mail list, called the EAS Exchange, continues to be
an active resource of EAS information for SBE members and non-members
